|The 5th Horseman
Lindsay, the police lieutenant, and Claire, the medical examiner, are working the 'car' cases....young murdered women are dressed in expensive clothes and left in expensive cars. The guys (what a pair!) who are doing this and the way they murder the girls form this part of the story. Of course, Lindsay nails the killers.
Cindy, the reporter, and Yuki, the lawyer, are sitting in on a trial--a class action suit by survivors of patients who died at a major San Francisco hospital. All the patients were in for non-life threatening problems and never made it home. One doctor in particular is suspected of altering medications and causing the deaths. Lindsay gets involved in this case as well, untangles the mystery, and eventually gets the culprit.
True to Mr. P's style, this is a quick, intriguing read. And, yes, his usual surprises are included. If you're a James Patterson fan, don't miss this one. The Women's Murder Club stories are getting as good as the Alex Cross stories.
